Thank Heavens they removed from downtown and hid them at Dal AC. Crumbling concrete rapidly deteriorating, and only the re-bar holding it together. Wonderful example of poor quality concrete not standing up to the weather. If they had any significance for Truro, or Nova Scotia...More

A really interesting site. Neat to see this piece of history right here in our hometown. These concrete wall sections give a sense of what the wall must have been like during the Cold War

This should be removed it's been gone for years now. Other places could be listed, Jamacian food is on the same street.

To see the large wall sections of Berlin leaves you with many raw feelings and gives you a wee glimpse of the past and the barriers mankind put up to isolate, punish/protect people. Tears always flow as I walk, drive past them. Frozen in time.

My niece presented me with a piece of the Berlin Wall retrieved during a visit to Germany. Years later a local enthusiast from Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada imported several sections and erected them on a vacant lot for the benefit of history for locals and...More
